CTVR Research Focus

We bring the service and technology mindset to bear on creating evolvable, submissive and sustainable networks within CTVR. We are interested in physical layer issues and interference management in self-architecting and self-planning wireless systems (in dense small-cell networks, in sparse large networks and in distributed topologies). We are particularly focused on creating radios that are cognisant of their hardware capabilities and limitations and how we can best adapt signal processing algorithms to make best use of the hardware. Our experience in cognitive radio experimentation underpins what we do and is very much in line with the CTVR ethos of theorise, simulate and build.
